Find him by the roadside, Joey’s thumb and cardboard sign
Spare a seat and take him to the next state line
He’s still running from the dream he tried to kill so many times
Fleeing from the courthouse papers dodging sentences and fines

Fence him in and take away his walking shoes
Too much freedom never done him any good
He’s one mistake away from nothing left to lose
Fence him in and take away his walking shoes

Their first son went to law school and the second one’s a doc
Mama’s always wondering how little Joey went so wrong
She tried to tell him time is short, mistakes are long
But he’s sneaking out the back door I’m stuck singing his song

They stopped him in a small town where the sign said 25
Clean cut sheriff’s deputy didn’t want his bribe
Hauled him off to the county jail so he could sit and cry
‘Cause they took away his whiskey and a little golden pipe
